Governor's Pandemic Influenza Summit
The Governor's Pandemic Influenza Summit was held on Sept. 3, 2009, at the Frankfort Convention Center. The summit allowed more than 1,200 people to learn about our state's capacity to respond to the expected surge in H1N1 cases this fall and to gain the information needed to prepare their organization for the continuation of the pandemic.
Target audiences included business, public and private K-12 education, secondary education, law enforcement and public safety agencies, health care workers and faith-based organizations.
Public health experts discussed the current H1N1 situation and what to expect in the fall. Representatives from schools, businesses and health care organizations discussed current pandemic flu plans and preparedness activities. Breakout sessions encouraged detailed information sharing on these topics and more.
